    Hi All:

    I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was worth sharing. A menacing beast reared up in preps for the onslaught... Cool weather pic regardless.

    Hi All:

    Not sure if this is a storm or an alien invasion? ;)

    Hi All:

    Why are we not supposed to shelter under a tree during a storm?

    Hi All:

    The tornado stretching almost a half a mile wide, struck just north Wray, Colorado on May 7, 2016.

    Aftermath of a tornado I think?

    Wayne,

    Those are mammatus clouds. They typically indicate severe turbulence associated with thunderstorms ("supercells") capable of producing tornadoes. They form on the underside of the "anvils" of such thunderstorms.

    Wow-some pictures-professional pictures I guess?
    Bad Weather is something-fun as long as you are certain you are safe(or so young you don't know any better)
    Living in south louisiana-I have seen LOTS of bad weather-
    5-6 hurricanes etc.
    But my first hurricane was in Fall River Mass-AUG/SEPT 1955 or so-yeah MASS. who would have thought.
    BUT the ABSOLUTELY worst weather-thunderstorm/lightning/parallel to the ground RAIN was in
    1)the TX panhandle-HY 287 DFW-AMARILLO
    2)and 100 miles N on I-10 OK/TX near that wind turbine farm in Weatherford.

    Such dry places-such horrendous weather-
    hot windy dry in summer-with miserable tornadoes
    cold dry windy in the winter
    Sure explains why it is depopulating
    Great place for WIND TURBINES- no one to whine about "ruined view" like the LEXUS LIBERALS in MASS
    Wind turbine farms look really cool at night in storms-flash of light-strobbing Turbines
    Like SCI-FI movie-spooky
    Great pictures Wayne
